ON A SOAP BOX
ON A SOAP BOX
It has been over a week since I have posted and was perusing this site as I have for many years. It used to be that I could find at least one or two people to at least chat with on here as a standard member. I seems that things are getting more and more difficult to do this.
I am not sure if it is the region of the country I just moved to. It could also be that AdultFriendFinder has increasingly made it more and more difficult for members who have not upgraded to make contact. There should be some form of incentives for those of us that have remained loyal to this site.
I even meet a girlfriend on this site. Sorry to say that it didn't work out, other issues that only creep up when you have been in a relationship for a while. I never left the site and continued to meet and make new friends. Well, I have moved and things seem so much different here.
I am finally getting acclimatized to my new surroundings and the area in which I now reside. I have been checking out other sites and they are basically the same. I get emails telling me someone is interested in me and would love to hook up. But these sites tell on themselves, the "people" in the emails haven't even visited or looked at my profile. These site keep track of who has looked at your profile, just like AdultFriendFinder. The first thing I do is check and see if the individual has looked at my profile. If they haven't I know it is just another scam to get me to spend my hard earned money on their site.
Why the deception? AdultFriendFinder is quilty of this to some extent. I just received an email about my new matches. Well, let's just say that the individuals listed have not visited AdultFriendFinder in over a month or longer. WTF? How can they be "NEW" matches when they are old profiles that are from people no longer visiting the site?
I have just finished reading several articles on how the internet dating arena is making money hand over fist. So how do they do it? Deception upon deception to get you to spend your hard earned money. Don't get me wrong, there may be some ligimate sites out there; but these sites are probably the ones that charge greater than 50 USD to be a member and for their services.
I have found one absolutely and totally free, no strings attached dating site. (believe it or not)
I will not post the name in fear of being deemed a spammer. But to let you know, they are out there and they do exist.
Have a good day, because I will.
Love to all my readers.
